This is my favorite shot from the day! I'm sure you recognize Sarah's face, as her fabulous shop Stutterin' Mama's Vintage Roadside Boutique has really taken off in the past year.
Sarah is huge inspiration for this project. Oh gosh, what a cheesy thing to say. But she is! About a year and a half ago, Sarah dumped her exhausting 9-5 corporate job to pursue her career in vintage full time. She found more time to work out and take care of her health, and lost over 20 pounds, taking her to a trim and gorgeous 25" waist. Wow! I thought... if she could find the time, with this busy business we do, so can I!
She's also good at keeping me honest about it. So before we get to the cute shots... here's me in workout gear, about to walk six miles at the golf course! Okay... here it is... really.... there. Sigh.
Oh, how I hate workout gear.
Anyway. Since the weather in Portland turned back to gray, there's still time for sweaters. We both paired ours with novelty skirts - that came from each other. The Pirates of Penzance skirt she is wearing used to be mine, and the entirely politically-incorrect Arabic man with camel skirt that I'm wearing used to be hers!
Yes, we both absolutely love Bakelite. My light blue, and her bubblegum pink are both pieces polished in this manner, found on Solanah's Vixen Vintage blog.
Sarah took all the photos today (she takes ALL her own photos for the shop, too! It's unbelievable!) So the clear, bright, pretty pictures are all thanks to her! So, let's have a few more.
My second favorite pic of the day! She and her beau have an AMAZING, PERFECTLY APPOINTED HOME - as I'm sure you can tell - right down to records that have, well, frankly fantastic jackets.

P.S. Since I made it to DAY 10 with no fails, I'm having a give-away tomorrow! Because I'm pretty stoked. Stay tuned!
